Kate Winslet Says She Deliberately Didn't Thank Harvey Weinstein for Her Oscar

Kate Winslet revealed that when she won her Academy Award, she didn’t thank Harvey Weinstein in her acceptance speech for a reason.

Kate won Best Actress for The Reader at the 2009 ceremony. And while most actors who worked with the producer thanked Harvey during their speeches in the past, she purposely did not.

“I remember being told ‘Make sure you thank Harvey if you win.’ And I remember turning around and saying, ‘No I won’t. No I won’t.’ And it was nothing to do with not being grateful. If people aren’t well-behaved, why would I thank him?” she told the Los Angeles Times in an interview published on Saturday (October 14).

“For my whole career, Harvey Weinstein, whenever I’ve bumped into him, he’d grab my arm and say, ‘Don’t forget who gave you your first movie.’ Like I owe him everything. Then later, with The Reader, same thing, ‘I’m gonna get you that Oscar nomination, I’m gonna get you a win, I’m gonna win for you.’”

Kate recently made a statement about the Harvey scandal, calling his behavior “disgraceful and appalling.”

Kate introduced the screening of her Woody Allen-directed film Wonder Wheel alongside Justin Timberlake during the closing night of the New York Film Festival at Alice Tully Hall on Saturday (October 14) in New York City.

    Ah, the irony with the statement is that she is at a screening of the movie with Woody Allen.

  • meme

    she’s a hypocrite just like the rest of Hollywood. they enabled Weinstein for 2 decades. Fuck them all

  • DorothyfromOz

    Why should she have thanked Weinstein? Did he put her through Drama school? He just benefited from her success, he should have been thanking her.

  • DorothyfromOz

    Who is she enabling? Woody Allen was already famous before she starred in one of his films.

  • meme

    she’s enabling woody allen by being in his films. and if you think she didn’t know all about Harvey, I have a couple of bridges to sell you.

  • calafeast

    I so agree. What; they are all deaf, blind and mute? I’m not anywhere near show-biz career-wise, and even I knew about these allegations.
    They all turned a blind eye to all this, now play fools. They all have oscars, but still not enough good actors to convince us of their unwilling ‘ignorance’.

  • Ausangel01

    So where’s the line Kate? You won’t thank Harvey but you’ll work for a child molester…yeah that makes a lot sense.

  • DorothyfromOz

    I never said she didn’t know about Weinstein. I’m sure most of the actresses knew his reputation however he didn’t just attack actresses.

  • Elvisfan Harb

    Sure don’t support a sex abuser but support a child abuser.
